Lands Minister John Carey has announced Cottesloe Living, Health & Aged Care as the preferred proponent to redevelop the heritage-listed Cottesloe Deaf School.

A memorandum of understanding has been signed between the State Government, the West Australian Foundation for Deaf Children and the successful proponent, Cottesloe Living, Health & Aged Care.

The MOU proposes delivery of residential aged care and seniors living apartments, as well as the Foundation remaining on the site - enabling the Foundation to add to its incredible 125 years of supporting Deaf and Hard of Hearing and their families in Western Australia.  

Originally built in 1896 by the Foundation, it provided education, technical training and boarding facilities for Deaf children until 1949, when it was taken over by the State Government.

The State Government will now enter a period of negotiation with the preferred proponent.
